Oil on gessoboard
|It's better than the first one, but... not by a huge margin.|
This is less the capstone of the project and more a testament to how done I was. After this painting, I didn't touch a brush to another surface for almost two weeks the first two days of which I spent watching the most mindless drek I could find streaming on the internet. Therein lies a lot of why it's taken me so long to finish posting these things: I didn't want to look at them, let alone put effort into showing them to others.
But I finished it. For four months, I didn't miss a single day (or night) of painting, come vacation and social visits and hurricanes and apathy and fatigue.
As ashamed of this painting as I am, I'm damn proud of that.
(i'll be doing a postmortem on the project in a day or two)
